Saturday February 22,2014 :  HERO POKER ON THE COMEBACK TRAIL
 
Open beta testing commences.
 
It's taking a little longer than expected, but Hero Poker could be firmly on the comeback trail, commencing open beta testing on its new Microgaming-powered client this week under Philippines licensing.
 
The site is currently restricted to real-money action in Philippines currency only, but that will presumably be expanded as the enterprise moves toward full online action.
 
There are apparently ambitious plans for major tournaments and a VIP program in train once the online poker site is fully operational.
 
The available information thus far is that Hero will operate as a standalone, and will not be part of the MPN despite its Microgaming software.
